Cooler is still getting people hot under the collar.

A third small design firm has been left out of pocket by the publisher of the drinks trade magazine Cooler.

In April The Drum reported that two small design firms, one based in Edinburgh, the other in Glasgow, had fallen foul of the Linlithgow-based publisher of Cooler, Nigel Jordan, and had lost out on a combined £6,700 owed for design work undertaken.

Now a third firm, Glasgow-based design company Scan-Hi, has been left unpaid after working on the fourth edition of the magazine.

According to production director Alex Muir, Scan-Hi has been left around £1,700 out of pocket after completing design and layout work on the fourth edition of Cooler magazine.

Muir says that he was put into contact with Jordan by the print firm that was doing work for Jordan, Adline Litho. However, Adline Litho has also been left out of pocket, to the tune of £1,600, by Jordan.

Muir says that he has now reported Jordan to Strathclyde Police’s fraud division and is currently awaiting a response.
